To manage their carbon footprint, many companies have been focusing on reducing emissions within their direct ownership or operational control (scope 1) and from their purchased electricity, heat and steam (scope 2). However, there is a growing need to reduce value chain emissions (scope 3) to keep global temperatures within safe levels. Despite the increased complexity associated with scope 3 emissions, hundreds of companies are already setting scope 3 reduction targets, and dozens are in line with best practices according to the Science Based Targets initiative.

We are seeking inputs and feedback on our proposed new guideline for dealing with Double Counting risks concerning GS VERS. These risks occur in countries or regions where a regulated carbon cap and trade or carbon tax system is in operation and where these may inadvertently monetise the same reduced emission a second time.
